John was born February 5, 1951, to the late Melvin and Angeline Brocker in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He was the youngest of nine children. John married Jill M. Brocker on April 21, 2001, and they have two children, Christian J. Brocker and Heather M. Brocker, along with one granddaughter, Payton Brocker. John worked for the Oneida Tribe of Indians as a building supervisor and was a dedicated employee, along with being a volunteer firefighter for the Oneida Fire Department for the past 14 years. John took his oath very seriously and often in emergency situations played a vital role in the protection of his fellow man and community.
John was a soft-spoken man. He loved to spend time with his family, tend to his granddaughter, and tinker in his shed, repairing his vehicles and equipment or helping repair his friends’ or neighbors’ things. He was a lover of country music. Hunting, watching football, NASCAR, and playing cards were a few of his pastimes.
John is missed dearly by his wife, children, and granddaughter, along with his dogs, Bandit and Renna; two brothers and two sisters; and many, many friends, coworkers, and fellow firefighters. John touched many lives in the Oneida/Green Bay area, and his memory lives on in all of us. He was always a person who was there for anyone in need.
We all love you, and you will be in our hearts forever.
